A Man Named Dave (ISBN 0-452-28190-3), the third installment of a series of autobiographical books of his life, continues the story of Dave Pelzer overcoming being abused as a child. The book starts with the memory of the last day of his abuse by his mother on March 5, 1973, and describes being hit in the throat with a broom, pushed down steps and choked, before being rescued that same day. The book also recounts the author's difficulties getting his first two books published, A Child Called It and The Lost Boy, and to sustain his first marriage, which eventually ended in divorce. Pelzer describes how his mother has not yet "changed", understanding that she never will, as well as his father's battle with, and death by cancer. He also describes joining the Air Force, marrying an editor, and finally making peace with his mother before her death.Dave also got married to Marsha Donohoe in 1999.
